The Self- 

an identity. 

The perception of how we see ourselves 

or how we would like to see ourselves. 

A combination of qualities and characteristics 

that make us all individuals. 

Our personality. 

We are all different, we are all distinct. 

Each of us posesses certain attributes that 

make us all heterogeneous — 

and yet we are all homogeneous. 

We congregate in this pseudo-metropolis 

known as a university — 

Taking many of the same classes, 

drinking in the same bars 

and living in the same pre-stylistic cubicals. 

But still the self persists. 

Some find solace in the company of others, 

some find it within themselves. 

Cluttered within the masses, and yet still detached 

Individuals trying to remain that way, 

trying to retain that last shred of insanity. 

Sometimes we cannot. 

Occasionally, we get caught up in the confusion 

and lose the self. 

But it can never really be lost. 

It is an intangible belonging that 

makes us special — makes us individual; 

makes us . . . The Self. 

Bob Sorino 

Self Portraits — Is there any better way to fully express 
individualism? On the following pages, KSU students have 
taken the opportunity to shape the Chestnut Burr with their 
own special brand of zany college humor in living color. Burr 
photographers set up their equipment outside the Student 
Center and Bowman Hall, allowing passing students to "do 
their thing" in front of the camera. The results? A picture is 
worth a thousand words.

Freshman Orientation week can be a lot of fun — that is — unless you are a 
freshman, or so the story goes. If the underclassmen participating in the 1 983 
orientation events were not having a good time, they sure didn't show it. Events 
ranging from sports, for the more athletically minded freshmen, to the dreaded 
orientation classes kept the estimated 3,000 underclassmen busy during the week.

When you get right down to it, there are only 
three kinds of people: drinkers, watchers and 
listeners. Drinkers, of course, are interested only 
in chasing the ever-elusive buzz, while the more 
sophisticated watchers and listeners take in the 
sights and sounds. The Hot Legs contest (left) at 
the Robin Hood is definitely a sight-oriented 
activity . . . and then some. Mother's (left) on the 
other hand, is geared toward the reggae crowd, 
while the Crazy Horse (below) falls somewhere in

The Chicago Knockers female mudwrestling team brought their two-hour act to 
McNasty's and, it seemed, most of the people in the packed house were from Kent State. 
Well, that might have had something to do with the fact that a KSU senior, Dave 
Flazynski, financed and promoted the event. "Raging Apache" (left) and "Ebony Eyes" 
(above) were two of the six wrestlers who challenged themselves, two KSU students and 
W'KDD air personality Matt Patrick to tag-team battles in the mud. Unfortunately for 
one of the McNasty's staff members (right), he got a little too close to the action. The 
event took place on Feb. 9, 1984.

Dorms/Off Campus 

Mickey Jones 


Brian Mooar 

In the beginning, there was on campus and off . . . 

In the dorms, for instance, there are literally thousands of 
available rooms. Most of those rooms are similar, if not identical. 
It leaves a lot to the imagination. 

But when the students move into their rooms shortly after 
summer break, a bizarre transformation suddenly takes place. 
Institutionalized settings suddenly take on personalities of their 
own, formed in the likeness of their creators. 

It is really amazing how much corruption can take place in a 
dorm type atmosphere. Dorms are the places where freshmen 
begin to unlearn all of the habits that they managed to pick up in 
high school. 

Studying is the first to go. 

Waking at early hours is not far behind. 

For some reason, there is an unwritten law that states that less 

than three out of five college freshmen will survive in the college 
system until graduation. 

The dorms act as a natural Darwinian stabilizer. They weed 
out the weaklings — only the strong will survive. 

To better facilitate the process, the university insures that each 
student will be paired with a roommate complete with his/her 
unbearable idiosyncrasies, late night/early morning habits and a 
penchant for the activities in life that you detest the most. 

Enough said. 

When you finally have the chance to move off campus, it 
seems like all your troubles are water under the bridge. 

Guess again. 

Landlord — (Land' — lord) n. See Ogre 

There are so many things that can go wrong when you're living 
in a house that doesn't belong to you. One of the primary hazards 


Sure, everybody complains about dorm life, but 
there are certain good points when it comes to on- 
campus life. Other than the noise, inconveniences 
and restrictions that go with the territory, dorm 
living gives KSU students a chance to meet one 
another and find out what life is all about on a first- 
hand basis. In other words, you're on your own kid 
— good luck!

of off campus life also happens to be one of the biggest 
advantages — the ability to party at will. 

Yes, there are absolutely no visitation restrictions like there 
are in the dorms, so you could theoretically invite an unlimited 
number of partiers to stay for days on end. In this way, you could 
very effectively assure yourself of never seeing one cent of your 
$300 or more security deposit. It is a simple law of supply and 
demand: if you destroy the supply of undamaged property in any 
given dwelling, the landlord demands money. It's just that 

Sure, both dorm life and off campus dwellings have their own 
drawbacks, but they also offer unique advantages. They are 
something that we just have to learn to live with and accept.

The grass is always greener on the other side, or so the story goes. 
No matter where you live — at home, in dorms or off campus — 
there are good and bad points for each living environment. Money 
and location are two primary considerations when looking for a 
semester residence. But it isn't always easy to find a place which 
meets both requirements so, like everything else in life, it is a game 
of give and take. 



Faculty/Student Portraits 



Dick Scesniak: Head coach, KSU football team 

We're interested in winning this year. I'm not interested in 
what's going to happen next year or the year after that. Let next 
year take care of itself. Our problems are the same ones that we 
have been talking about from the beginning. Our biggest 
opponent is still Kent State. 

A good offense should be able to move the ball, and right now, 
we just can't do that at all ... I think they've (the team) got the 

Bob Sorino 

ability to do what we're asking, but they've got to stop fooling 
themselves. A good offense is 1 1 guys working together. We're 
not even close. 

(After his team broke the 21 -game losing streak) I don't think 
I can describe how 1 feel. It made me happy for the player and 
the students. It meant so much to the community — the 
academic people, the students and the townspeople. (Excerpted 
from the Daily Kent Stater) 


Mickey Jones 

Thomas Wills: Fall 1983 editor-in-chief, the Daily Kent Stater 

Being editor of the Stater is a real drain on your time. Sure, 
there's a lot of pride in having the job, but it takes so much time, 
it seems like there's no time for anything else. 

1 missed a lot of classes, and I never missed classes before that 
- it was terrible. My grades slipped, and that put me in a bad 
mood because I wasn't used to that. I had always managed to 
keep pretty good academic standards, but during my semester as 
Stater editor, they really slipped. 

The Stater took a lot of my time, and in a way, that's 
regrettable. But there's no other way to do it. I wasn't working 
with a huge staff — I was working with a core staff of 10 or 15 
really dedicated people. 

I didn't really have a lot of friends outside of the Stater other 
than the people that I went to school with back at home, and I 

think there's a reason for that. It's easy to build relationships with 
people that you work with and see every day. 

1 feel sorry for journalism majors who haven't had a chance to 
work for the Stater, because 1 think they are really going to have 
to fight hard to get a job. If they don't have the motivation and 
the dedication to do it in a college setting . . . You know, the 
Stater is really a proving ground for what you're going to do after 
you get out of college. And if you aren't motivated enough to do 
it here, then what makes you think an editor is going to give you a 
job? That's part of the reason that I've worked as editor of the 

I'm proud of what we've done this year . . . I'm not proud of 
what I've done, I'm proud of what we've done. As everyone at the 
Stater knows, it's not just a one person deal. 


Laurie End: Teaching Fellow, psychology 

I've been teaching at Kent State for three years as a teaching 
fellow in the psychology department, and it has been quite an 
experience. The first two years, I was here doing research and 
had minimal contact with undergraduates, but I did enjoy the 
people I talked to, and I was looking forward to my third year 
when I would start teaching. The first class I taught was a 
developmental psych, class that met on Sunday afternoons! I was 
a little surprised to be teaching on the weekend, but as teaching 
fellows, we can only ask to teach certain courses — we have very 

Mickey Jones 

little choice about when the class will meet. 

The only thing that I really don't like about teaching is 
assigning grades because, in many cases, I don't think that the 
exam is representative of what the student knows. But, since I 
plan to continue teaching, I suppose that assigning grades is a 
necessary evil that I will have to deal with. 

One of my goals as an educator is to generate interest in 
psychology where there may have been little or no interest before. 
And if I can accomplish that (with even just one student), I feel 
like I've accomplished something.

Cindy Ott: Director of Aquatics, KSU Intramural Department 

As Director of Aquatics, I can hire, train, evaluate and can fire 
the lifeguards and aquatic personnel. I also schedule and 
promote any aquatic tournaments and special events dealing with 
the department. The exposure to all different kinds of people is 
what I enjoy most about my job. Just meeting a lot of different 
people and interacting is fun for me. 

There's really nothing I don't like about my job. I do get 
frustrated, though, when not enough people participate in some 
of the clubs and tournaments that take place. We need more 
people to get involved. It's frustrating to have to work so hard to 
reach our goals as far as getting participants. 

I think there are many reasons for the lack of student 

involvement. Many people just don't feel comfortable with 
certain types of sports. Each activity attracts a certain type of 
person. Of course, we can always afford to publicize our 
programs more — there's never too much publicity. 

I'd like to add different tournaments to the department. Each 
year, I try to add one new activity or program to try to reach a 
well-rounded majority of the (Kent State) population. 

KSU offers basically the same opportunities as other 
universities, but we are better in that we have more of a variety of 
activities. I was a graduate assistant at Ohio State and, although 
they are a much larger school, I noticed that they do not have as 
much variety. Many students just aren't aware of all the 
opportunities that we at Kent Sate have to offer. 


Tina Magazine: sophomore, political science 

From my experiences at Kent State, I really feel that I have 
learned a great deal — not only about other people, but about 
myself as well. 

Since I'm involved in a number of university activities, I feel 
that I have had the chance to make myself a more well-rounded 

I am currently involved in the Air Force ROTC, and I hope to 
become an interpreter for the United States Government. I am a 
member of the KSU bicycle club and I am also a member of the 
Italian Society. While I am attending Kent State, I am working 
part-time as a secretary to earn extra money. 

1 am majoring in political science and Russian. 

One of the reasons that I chose Kent State is because of its 
excellent political science department. Another big reason is the 
KSU campus. 

I really do think that KSU has one of the nicest campuses in 
Ohio. We have a lot of fields, trees and flowers that are just 
perfect to take advantage of during the months that we have nice 

The people at Kent State are really friendly, and I've had 
some of the best times in my life with these people. I'm really 
looking forward to my next two years!

Dr. John Binder: Assistant dean of Student Life 

As the assistant dean of Student Life, I am responsible for all 
campus clubs and organizations. It may not be the easiest job, 
but out of everything I've been involved in since I came to Kent, 
this is my favorite. 

The opportunity to work with students is what makes the job so 
rewarding. Many administrative jobs force you to be farther and 
farther away from people, but I am in constant contact with 

I love today's KSU students. I've seen many changes over the 
years. I've seen girls go from clod-hoppers to bib overalls to what 
they are today, and I think it reflects a complete change in 
attitude. In the 70's, everyone was anti-government and anti- 

administration, but they have definitely matured and developed 
very positive attitudes. 

My goal is to get more students involved in the organizations 
on campus. The average student group has only nine or 10 
members, and one reason for this is that people don't know what 
is available to them. Once student awareness is increased, 
hopefully, involvement will also improve. The students are the 
institution — Kent can't survive without them. 

Academically, KSU is on the rise. Previously, we had no 
competition — Akron and Youngstown State were just city 
schools. Now that they have expanded, KSU has also ascended. 
Compared to other schools in the region, I think we're the best. 


Bob Nation: Detective, University Police 

I believe the most important function of the police department 
as a whole is to provide services to the university community. The 
best part of my job is that I have the opportunity to work in 
environmental conditions that bring many types of people 
together. We have people from the inner city, the country, 
international students and people from each class of society. 
There are so many different facets of the university. 

My job as a detective involves investigations into the criminal 
activities of students, faculty and staff. I investigate the situation, 
evaluate the facts and then bring formal charges against the 
defendant. I also make sure that the university policies and 
regulations are followed. 

In a sentence, our department tries to keep everybody honest. 
It's hard, because there are so many different areas that must be 

Jim Fossett 


I think that in the last two years the police department has 
really changed. We're trying to gear ourselves to the community, 
and become more responsive to the needs of the university. 

I am very interested in raising student awareness. We need 
more community involvement. I'd like to see individuals who 
have never had contact with the police to make some contact. I 
don't mean that they should get into trouble — that's not what 
we focus on. We're service-oriented. We're always happy to talk 
with students about any service that we provide. Our goal is to 
promote interaction with the police department. 

All in all, I would like to see more people become acquainted 
with the many services we provide. We want to help people in all 
parts of the spectrum.

Bob Curtis: University Bookstore keeper 

Running the bookstore has become a much bigger concern 
than when I started working here at Kent State. I began my job 
thirteen years ago at the old Student Union, handling all of the 
film and art supplies. I had experience working in an 'essentials' 
store during my 24 years in the military, so it didn't take much 
adjustment for my new job here at the bookstore. 

Of course, now the bookstore has expanded, and it took some 
getting used to at first. For instance, the beginning of each 
semester can get pretty hectic with everyone buying books and 
supplies at the same time. 

But I don't have to be involved much with floor operations. The 
major part of my job is to pick up the supplies from the 
companies, check them in at the store, price them and make sure 
they are stocked on the shelves correctly. I've had some 
commercial art training, so I also make the signs and artwork 
used in the store. Being able to use my art talent is one of my 
favorite parts of my job. 

1 like the security of my job. I've had the chance to see lots of 
changes take place at Kent. The students have matured, the 
school has grown and I feel comfortable and happy to be a part 
of the university. 


Tim Aten: Senior, telecommunications 

I've been promotions director for WKSR for two years and a 
disc jockey on the same station for three years. I started when all 
the station had was a little studio stuck in a cubbyhole, so the 
move to the new location is a big improvement. 

I am basically responsible for every visible aspect of WKSR, 
such as newspaper ads, flyers, posters and even our logo. 

I was interested in art all through high school, and started 
college as a graphic design major. At that time, however, I was 
also interested in radio, so I went to a meeting for WKSR. From 
then on, it was a steady climb from disc jockey to operations to 

Actually, I am the first true promotions director the station 
has had. Years ago, there was virtually nothing visual about the 
station. Using my art background, I was able to increase its

After graduation, I would like to get involved with the media 
in a way that I can use all of my talents. I know it won't happen 
immediately — that's too much to ask. But one day I want to be 
able to utilize everything: art, my writing ability and radio. I 
direct a comedy show on TV-2 called To Be Announced, which 
we started in 1981. It grew in popularity and became an official 
student organization, but, as far as I'm concerned, it has already 
reached its peak. Because of that, I devote most of my time to 

Eventually, I would like to get into directing — especially 
films. I think that would be the ultimate creative outlet for me. I 
know it's a lofty goal, but it's something I'd really like to do. I 
don't have much experience in that area, but I know I could do it 
if given the chance.

Ron Spangler: Instructor, KSU Theater Department 

The great thing about being a part of the theater here at Kent 
is the fact that one never stops learning. The opportunity to 
perform here allows me to keep the performance experience fresh 
in mind and help me bring it with me to my acting classes. I no 
longer remain the teacher who simply instructs students, but now 
I can share the same joys and frustrations as they do. 

Performing in Peer Gynt offered me a wealth of growth 
potential. The character was a wild one — a demented director 
of an insane asylum who should probably be locked up instead of 
locking people up. This offers an actor, in conjunction with his 

director a wonderful freedom to explore and find the best way to 
express this unique personality. I also had to have a German 
accent — something that I have never been required to do in 
performance, so I was certainly offered with a challenge there. 

The performance experience, itself, is an exhilarating one. To 
be given a chance to share ideas and emotions with an audience 
is the greatest privilege an actor can be given. It makes me realize 
just how lucky I am to be making a career out of what gives me 
the most joy. Not that, at the time, its all fun, but with each 
experience — good or bad — you learn more about the craft. 
And who could ask for more? 


Dr. Richard A. Heimlich: Professor, geology 

My goal as an educator is to help guide students through the 
vast amount of knowledge that has accumulated in my own area 
of geology. I also strive to acquaint students with how the earth 
works and the importance of the earth in everyday life. You 
know, people aren't always aware of that. There will definitely be 
a greater need for geologists in the future because they are 
actively involved in discovering all of the resources needed for 
society to advance. 

I'm interested in providing a broader perspective on how one 

Bob Sorino 

finds oneself at the young age of a college student and how to 
plan for the future in dealing with life in general. Though this is 
an ongoing need, students today are, perhaps, a bit more 
practically oriented toward doing the things necessary for a 
career. They are a little more serious minded in purpose. 

On the other hand, one of the worst aspects of teaching is 
seeing the frustration of a few students in every class resulting 
from their inadequate preparation or lack of motivation for 
college work. It's the job for the professor to motivate, but 
students must bring their own motivation first. 


Mickey Jones 

Sylke Benner: Prentice Hall RSA 

There are many things to like and dislike about my job. Being 
a Resident Staff Advisor (RSA) can be very rewarding. With 
your staff, you learn to recognize and accept your own faults and 
strengths. The personal growth and experience is tremendous. 

Being in contact with people all the time helps you to get to 
know yourself, but also helps you know how to handle and deal 
with other people. Everybody thinks that having room and board, 

plus $100 a semester, is the big reward from this job. But, 
actually, it's knowing you have reached out to fellow students and 
helped them through some difficult times or made them feel 
welcome at such a large university. 

The aspect I dislike most about this job is having to discipline 
people who aren't mature enough to take responsibility for their 


Greek Life 

Mark Miller 

Bob Sorino 


Bob Sorino 

To be Greek, or not to be Greek . . . That is the question. For 
what reason would any rational individual want to degrade 
himself or herself by joining one of Kent State's 10 sororities or 
13 fraternities? 

I have always tried to avoid passing judgment without first 
reviewing all the information, so I naturally assumed that the 
only logical way to learn more about the Greek system would be 
to join the Greek system. Right? 

Well, I never actually went that far, but I did buy a satin 
jacket (in my case, it said Chestnut Burr). I was what Greeks 
might call a G.D.I. (God Damn Independent). In other words, I 
was an outsider. 

To say that I was anti-Greek would be an admission of my own 

Sure, I didn't know much about Greek life, but I did have a lot 
of preconceptions which seem to be shared by all G.D.I.'s. I'm not 

Bob Sorino 


really sure where most of these stereotypes came from, but I'm 
almost positive that television and movies had something to do 
with it. But, on the other hand, my trip to Indiana University 
influenced and reinforced many of my already growing 

While driving around the Indiana campus, lost in a state of 
confusion, I somehow found myself cruising down "Frat Row." 
After seeing estate after estate of limestone mansions and a few 
dozen fleets of assorted Audi's, Porsche's and Mercedes, my 
beliefs were only reinforced. As a matter of fact, some of these so- 
called houses were so stately, they made the governor's mansion 
look like Jed Clampet's cabin. 

There is no way you can compare a Greek system like that 
with the one at Kent State. Until last fall, many of the Kent 
fraternity houses were on the verge of being 

Photos by Bob Sorino 


condemned. Through their own initiative (and a 
little coaxing from the University) the houses 
standards were brought up to a livable condition. 

On the other hand, the Kent State sorority 
houses provide some of the better accommodations 
around. The Alpha Phi house, for instance, has 
eight separate apartments, each of which has its 
own bathroom and kitchen. 

Most of the sororities have their own cooks, 
some have maids (but most sororities divide the 
chores among their members) and a few have 
grounds keepers. 

And for only $1,00 per semester, this life of 
luxury could be yours. 

The fraternities, on the other hand, must fend 
for themselves. If you're hungry — order a pizza. 
If the house is a mess — don't worry, someone will 
clean it . . . eventually. And if the grass needs 
trimming, simply borrow a goat from one of the 
local farmers. If that doesn't work, give the pledges 
a few pairs of scissors. 

You can have all of this, plus a scenic view of the 
neighbor's leaf-clogged downspouts for only $450 
per semester. 

So, what does it take to be Greek? 


Bob Sorino 


Henri Adjodha (above and below 


One semester (pledge period), a 2.2 GPA and $25 a month are 
the only prerequisites for Greek life, but to succeed as a Greek, 
you have to have a desire to get involved. Take for instance, the 
Alpha Phi's second annual Cardiac Arrest in February. With the 
help of Campus Police and the Volunteer Ambulance Service, 
the Phi's arrested willing victims and held them for bail (about 
$50). The proceeds went to the American Heart Association. 

So, what about the parties? I must admit, the Greek system 
does have its share of great parties. The Sigma Alpha Epsilon's 
Paddy Murphy party was a great example. They have a four day 
wake to mourn the demise of a supposed former brother (I think 
it's just another excuse to party.) 

The most fun that I had in my pseudo-Greek existence, was 
the Chi Omega sorority formal. Guys, if you ever have the chance 
to attend a formal, go! You'll have a great time — a fantastic 
time, because your date picks up the tab. 

Let's face it. There really isn't that much difference between 
Greeks and any other organization. Either way, you are 
associating with a certain group of people. 

The Greek system here at Kent State has a lot to offer and it 
shouldn't be condemned without being scrutinized first. I still 
don't think that I would join a fraternity, by my outlook on 
Greeks has changed. Maybe you should check the Greek system 
out — you might be surprised.

Campus Jobs 

Photos by Peter Phun 

For most students, the decision to get a campus job is a 
financial one. Some campus workers use their money to pay 
tuition and offset the rising cost of education. Others use money 
to try and enhance their quality of living. Either way, there are a 
lot of campus jobs out there and students who need them are 
likely to find themselves working any job from cook to bus driver. 

Although the jobs don't leave much room for promotion, most 
students can find a job to suit their tastes. Obviously, some jobs 
require more labor and responsibility than others, but they all 
have one thing in common: they provide services for other 

One of the more visible jobs on campus is the Resident Service 
Advisor (RSA). According to Lake Hall RSA Michael Zagger, 
the RSA position is one of the least structured jobs on campus. 

There are no set working hours for an RSA, although they are 
required to remain in their room or be available during duty 
hours. For this reason, Zagger said he feels that the work he does 
as an RSA is different from other campus jobs. 



Whether you are feeding thousands of Kent State 
students, or making sure that they get to classes on time, 
student jobs can be the most thankless positions on 
campus. The pay is probably not the greatest and the 
hours spent at work tend to gnaw away at your social 
life, but when the pay check comes in, it all seems a little 
more worthwhile.

"We are responsible for the safe operation of the dorm, and we 
try to make sure that the residents are comfortable in their 
surroundings," Zagger said. "Our job has a lot more 
responsibilities than most jobs, but we also receive greater 

For their service, RSA's receive free room and board and are 
also paid $100 at the end of each semester. In return for this, 
RSA's are scheduled to work one duty night each week and four 
weekends a semester. They are also required to present three 
social programs each semester. 

"One of the hardest parts of being an RSA is trying to gain 
the student's respect," Zagger said. "You have to be very careful 
to keep things under control while, at the same time, letting the 
students have a good time and enjoy living in the dorms. The 
biggest thing you have to remember about being an RSA is that 
it's only a job." 

On the other end of the prestige and pay scale is the cafeteria 
worker. It has been said that just the mention of cafeteria food is 
enough to strike fear into the average student's heart. Although 
they are not responsible for the taste of the food, cafeteria 
workers say they are the ones who get most of the complaints 
from the students. 

Although working in a cafeteria atmosphere may lead to a sort 
of natural inferiority complex, Jim Ervin, a Prentice cafeteria 
employee, said the job does have its merits. 

"We hear a lot of complaints, but there's not much we can do 
about it. Most of the students just serve the food," Ervin said. 
"I work short hours every day, and it's almost like having a class 
at the end of the day that I get paid for." 

"My job teaches you a lot of respect for people. I feel you have 
to go above and beyond what my job requires. If you want to, you 
can have a good time at work," Ervin said. 


One of the campus jobs which everyone hopes they never have to become 
the recipient of, is that of the Health Center employees. Members of the 
Volunteer Ambulance Service (above), unlike other campus workers, are able 
to go to classes when they are on the job. Workers can go to class, but remain on 
call and are notified by radio if there is an emergency somewhere on campus. 


Thomas Lewis 

"I'd like to think of myself as the Jack Benny of fish-n-chips," 
Ervin said. "I think you should try to put some personality into 
your job." 

Some campus jobs really have no description at all. It may 
seem that area desk workers have nothing to do other than stand 
around and socialize with other residents. In reality, nothing 
could be farther from the truth. 

A good description for the job of area desk worker could 
probably read: Wanted — individuals willing to work odd hours, 
solve hundreds of problems weekly, cope with an endless number 
of questions and still manage to keep a smile on his/her face. 

Area desk workers are responsible for the smooth flow of 
students in and out of the dorms. They are also responsible for 
maintaining the university's vast communication network. Each 
time they go on their rounds or leave the room when on duty, the 
RSA's are required to report to their area desk. 

Because of the nature of their job, desk workers are required to 
be on duty during some of the worst hours that the campus job 
scene has to offer. The area desks remain open 24 hours a day, so 
you can always count on someone at the desk — even at four a.m. 

Tony Trigilio, employee at the New Front desk in Prentice 
hall, said he likes his job because he gets to meet new people. 

"I like to leave people with the impression that we're 
efficient," Trigilio said. "If I do that, then it leaves the 
impression that the whole university is." 

Trigilio said that he feels his job is one of the best on campus 
because it balances responsibilities and rewards, even if the 
students can become a little abrupt at times. 

"1 have found very few people to be rude with us, but I'll 
usually reply with a smile when someone is," he said. 

Even with all the hassles, most of the student workers say they 
would not quit their job. For one thing, the money is just too 
important. But the most important reason is also the most 
obvious one. Without the student workers, it would be impossible 
for the university to function. Students play a vital role in the 
daily operations of the university, and that is something that will 
not soon change. Students are willing to perform crucial 
university jobs for relatively low wages. 

Nothing could make more sense. 

John James 


As any staff member of the Chestnut Burr could 
tell you, campus jobs can be a real hassle sometimes. 
But, when faced with tuition, books, room and food, 
not to mention various other fees which seem to jump 
up from nowhere — it's amazing what a student will 
do to earn the minimum wage.

Aviation is not something that you would find every Tom, 
Dick and Harry talking about at Kent State. 

As a matter of fact, many people aren't even aware that KSU 
has its own airport. Yes, it's true, Kent State owns and operates 
its own independent airport which is run by KSU students and 

All work and no play . . . 

According to the aviation school students, the KSU program is 
one of the toughest in the nation. High standards go with the 

But what do these people do for fun? 


This past year, the Kent State Flying Club enjoyed one of its 
strongest years ever, tripling its previous membership and, 
according to club president Roger Quinn, formed a "solid 
organization promoting general aviation to the university and 

"Not many people wanted to join the club in the past, because 
it seemed so shaky to them," Quinn said. "At the beginning of 
the year, we owed the university several thousand dollars. So our 
officers worked on collecting money owed to us by members, 
which paid off because we paid our debt back and came out $400 
in the black. The extra money helped us sponsor more events for 
the club." 

This year, the Flying Club offered such programs as the FAA- 
sponsored safety seminar, held in April, a

field trip to Dayton's Wright-Patterson Air Force Base during the same month and an 
earlier trip to the NASA Lewis Research Center in Cleveland. The group also produced 
a monthly newsletter, Notums, which includes the names of Airmen who have just 
earned their FAA license. 

In an attempt to broaden its appeal, the Flying Club made efforts to include people 
with little or no flying experience. 

"At this time, we are quite excited about getting involved in flight training," Quinn 
said. "Once the details are worked out with the insurance company, we will be able to 
offer flight training to those who wish to have an FAA license." 

Quinn said the idea is especially exciting because it means that anyone will be able to 
join the club, even those people who have never flown an aircraft before. 

One of the advantages of learning through the Flight Club, Quinn said, is the 
individual instruction that each

student receives. The student has the chance to learn through the 
club at their own pace. If they were taking the course through the 
university, all required instruction must be completed in four 

One of the big attractions for aviation students to join the 
Flight Club is the reduced rate offered on renting aircraft from 
the KSU airport. 

"I think that the best feature of the club is that any member 
with an FAA license has perfect access to the university 
aircraft," senior Darryl Borg, a two year member of the group, 

"In the past, our group served as just a means for pilots to 
cheaply rent aircraft," Quinn said, asserting that the club is 
trying to expand its horizons. "Now we are trying to be more of a 
club for pilots." 

Mike Smith, a junior who has been with the Flight Club for 
nearly two years, said that his time spent with the club has been 
well worth the effort. 

"The greatest thing about the club," Smith said, "is that all of 
us can get together and talk about one shared interest — flying."

Athletics trainers, the unsung heroes of the sports department, 
are responsible for the supervision, care and prevention of all 
athletic injuries that occur during the course of a season. 

According to head trainer John Faulstick, Kent State has one 
of the two smallest training staffs in the area. It consists of the 
head trainer, two full-time assistants and eighteen student 
trainers. This may seem substantial until you consider that they 
are responsible for nineteen sports and over 500 athletes. 

"The time we spend doing our jobs is unbelievable," said 
Faulstick. "I work from 6:30 every morning until 6:30 or 7:00 at 
night, and after a while it takes over your whole life." 

Faulstick's responsibilities are extensive, ranging from 
establishing conditioning programs to designing meal plans for 
the athletes. "My duties go beyond the obvious," he said. "I not 
only have to monitor the progress of every sport, but also make 
the teams' travel arrangements, fit equipment and generally 
make sure that everything runs smoothly."

Aside from the physical aspects of a trainer's job, there are many 
psychological factors involved. The training staff is responsible for keeping the 
athletes in a positive frame of mind, especially when they are recovering from 
an injury. 

"It's hard for an athlete to regain his confidence once he has been injured," 
Faulstick said. "Part of my job, and that of the other trainers, is to help him 
overcome any anxieties he has because of that injury and what caused it. Our 
primary objective is to get the athlete back into an active environment, but we 
first have to make sure he is ready, both mentally and physically, to return to 
where he was." 

According to the staff, KSU has an excellent training program. "Working in 
the program has given me a lot of hands-on experience that will be valuable in 
my future career," said senior Cathy Sellers. "I hope to be an official trainer at 
a university after completing my education, and I feel proud to say that I gained 
my experience at Kent State." 

"The strongest part of the program is the chance to work with so many 
different people," said Staci Bishop, a junior in the training program. "Being 
with the athletes for such a long period of time, we see a whole different side of 
them. Most of the KSU students don't realize how hard the athletes have to 
work, and it really gets to us when they insult them for losing a game or making 
a mistake."

The competition for athletic trainer jobs is difficult. Each 
person has to go through a careful selection process before he can 
become a trainer. The financial rewards are minimal, but it's the 
only way to learn the requirements of being an athletic trainer 

"Kent State turns out quality people," Faulstick said. "] enjoy 
watching them enter the program, and three or four years later 
come out of it mature and ready for the professional world."

Fashion School 

Thomas Lewis 

For all of us Midwesterners who try desperately to keep up 
with the latest news from the New York fashion designers by 
ritualistically buying copies of Cosmopolitan and Vogue — I 
want to know just how Calvin, Oscar and Gloria have come to 
call all of the fashion shots. 

Well, up until now, New York-bred Rumplestiltskins who can 
spin straw into gold have taken the lead at the design helm. But 
all of that might change. 


Look out New York. The KSU School 
of Fashion Design and Merchandising is 
on the rise. Director Gladys Toulis (far 
left) said she expects her school to be very 
selective with its students. The school is 
privately funded, and has been helped out 
by fashion designers Shannon Rodger 
(left) and Jerry Silverman, who donated 
portions of their own private collections 
for the design museum. 

Mark Rogers 



The Midwestern Rumplestiltskin's day has come, and the gap 
between Calvin Klein and Kent State has narrowed after the 
establishment of the School of Fashion Design and 

"We are like a new baby," Gladys Toulis, director of the 
newly formed school, said. "We have been born, but we don't 
know quite what we're going to be . . . The future is yet to tell." 

Parents to the $18 million privately funded project are Jerry 
Silverman and Shannon Rodgers, the highly acclaimed 
American fashion design team. 

In May of 1981, the acknowledged pillars of the American 
fashion industry announced that they were giving $150,000 in 
seed money and a 2,500 piece collection of period costumes, 
paintings, silver, china and art objects valued at $4 million to 
establish the school of fashion design and a fashion museum at 
Kent State. 

"The idea is to set up a college-level school in the Midwest 
comparable to the Fashion Institue in New York, the only other 
school with a similar program in design," Silverman said in a 
Stater interview. 

Lora Kendall, student of the fashion design school and 
president of the Fashion Student Organization, said she is excited 
about the prospects offered by the new school. Kendall said she 
hopes to work for Channel or Calvin Klein someday — a goal 
which probably is in the minds of many students. 

"I'm very pragmatic," Toulis said of her fashion school. "I am 
not saying that we are going to graduate hundreds of top name 
designers — but what our graduates do, they must do 
fantastically well."

The Win

Hundreds of KSU students poured onto the field 
after the Golden Flashes beat Eastern Michigan 37-13, 
ending a 2 1 -game losing streak, the longest in the 
nation. Actually, the crazed Flash fans jumped out on 
the field before the game was over, viciously 
attacking the symbol of their frustration — a lone goal 


Goal Post! 

Crazed KSU students and frenzied Flash fans erupted onto the 
Dix Stadium field, hundreds of them, all hoping to have their way 
with the football goal posts. 

University police stepped aside, allowing the students to mount 
the stadium's uprights and ride them to the ground, looking like the 
Marines that raised the flag on Iwo Jima, but in reverse. 

These KSU students were patriots, in their own minds if nothing 
else, and had a sacred duty to destroy the monument to the 21- 
game Flash losing streak. 

The streak, which started two seasons before, brought Kent the 
dubious honor of holding the longest losing streak in division I-A 

As the end of the game drew near, some Flash fans refused to 
believe the impossible . . . Kent was beating Eastern Michigan. 

"Everyone ..." a voice screamed out, ready to lead the crowd on 
to riot, "I want you to pray to your favorite god." 

But the crowd had reason to pray. 

In two previous games, the Golden Flashes had been beating 
their opponent, then, in the last quarter, something snapped. It was 
midnight — Cinderella turned into a pumpkin, and the Flashes 
lost. So it goes.

Once upon a time in a magical land of mist and fog, there lived 
a handsome king and his beautiful queen. Animated characters 
frolicked across the countryside in celebration of the special 
day . . . 

It could be the beginning of a fairy tale, but then again, it 
would also describe the atmosphere surrounding the KSU 
Homecoming weekend activities. Instead of mist and fog, 
though, there was rain which threatened to cancel the weekend 
entertainment. But despite the weather, hundreds of spectators 
turned out to watch the parade while hundreds more braved the 
elements and witnessed the Golden Flashes' 21-20 loss to the 
Ohio University Bobcats. 

The theme for the 1983 Homecoming was "Salute to the 
Comics," a theme which was carried over into most of the 
weekend's events. A one-mile fun run kicked off the 
Homecoming Day events, which was followed by the parade. 

Although the spirits of Golden Flash fans were in high gear on 
Oct. 22, the Flashes fell to one of the most discouraging defeats 
of the season. 

Thomas Lewis 


Although the weekend was threatened by typical 
Ohio weather, the 1983 Homecoming festivities were 
still able to keep students and residents of the city of 
Kent interested. Homecoming queen Sandy Learner 
and king Mike Maczuzak (left) braved the elements 
for the crowning ceremony, which took place during 
half-time at the KSU-Ohio University game.

The Golden Flashes were leading Ohio University 20-0 in the 
fourth quarter of the game. After a few key plays and some major 
Flash breakdowns, the Bobcats were leading 21-20. Although 
KSU came within yards of scoring another touchdown, the 
elusive victory never came. 

The game was supposed to be the highlight of the weekend's 
activities, but that was not the case. 

Even though the Flashes lost, head football coach Dick 
Scesniak said he was still optimistic about the rest of the season. 

"It was a difficult struggle, but we emphasize the positive," 
Scesniak said. 

With the game appearing to be an easy victory in the first 
three quarters, Scesniak said his team may have become 
overconfident. "It's not over 'til it's over," Scesniak said, quoting 
cartoon character Yogi Bear. 

But soon, the loss was forgotten as the more adventurous 
Homecoming participants scattered around the city of Kent to 
take part in the various activities, including the Oktoberfest, 
sponsored by the Downtown Kent Bar Owners Association. 

As tradition dictates, the Homecoming weekend activities 
ended with the Homecoming Dance, sponsored by the All- 
Campus Programming Board. King Mike Maczuzak, sponsored 
by Verder Hall, and queen Sandy Learner, sponsored by Alpha 
Xi Delta, reigned over the event.

Marching Band

They huddle in the stands and then take to the field at half-time. 
They are probably some of the most ardent fans of the Golden 
Flashes and, without doubt, the most musical. 

Playing, marching and marking time, the 124 members of the 
KSU Marching Band are as common to Saturday afternoons at Dix 
Stadium as the football team. 

Performing at half-time and playing spontaneously in the stands 
are all part of an afternoon's work for a KSU Marching Band 

It's great to see the crowd's reaction," Cheryl Colby, a senior 
band member, said. 

Colby, a clarinet section leader, is a music education major, but is 
by no means representative of the band as a whole. The KSU 
Marching Band is as diversified as any group on campus, with 
members ranging in majors from nursing to business. Among the 96

Nothing as trivial as rain, snow, sleet or hail would 
prevent the Kent State Marching Band from cheering 
the Golden Flashes on to victories which never came.

musicians, 28 Flasherettes and Flag Squad members are students 
from all colleges and departments of the university. 

Michael Lee, director, said that although the band had many new 
members, they have managed to equal the quality of the group in 
previous years. Even though 200 musicians auditioned for the KSU 
Marching Band, only 60 new members were inducted in to the 

In addition to traditional home game performances, the band 
hosted the 2nd annual KSU Marching Band Invitational, made a 
guest appearance at the Orville Band Festival and traveled to 
Oxford to perform at the Kent State-Miami University game. 

Most of the band members agree that the long, hard hours spent 
practicing each week are worth the effort. 

Many of the band members marched in high school and wanted 
to continue in college, and Annie Wren is no exception.

a student at Stow High School. 

"I was really just interested in band," Wren said, adding that the

The KSU Band has grown dramatically since it was first 
organized in 1929. The organization, originally a 20-member group,

organizations which include more than 250 students.

May 4

Robin Coller 

The story of the May 4, 1970, Kent State shootings is an old 
one — a 14-year-old one to be exact. It is old enough and far 
enough removed that it seems like the worst of dreams, or maybe 
something out of an old B-movie. 

It is old enough, in fact, that most of us have no real memories 
of those days. We only know what we have been taught and what 
we have experienced — especially during our time here at Kent 

There are facts that everyone knows: In response to then- 
President Richard Nixon's announcement of the invasion of 
Cambodia, students across the country protested. 

Here at Kent State, the shouting was as loud as anywhere. 

The downtown area of Kent was trashed as students were 
hurried out of bars for reasons they did not know. The ROTC 
building was burned to the ground as students watched and 
cheered. Students were stabbed by bayonets of the National 
Guardsmen, brought to the campus to quell the disturbance. 

But instead of dousing the flames, the Guard fanned the fire of 
student distruct.

For some reason, even after 13 years, the May 4 commemoration ceremonies 
have managed to draw media attention. For better or worse, it will always set 
KSU apart. Alan Canfora (above, far right) as he appears today, is pictured on 
page 102, minutes before he was wounded on May 4, 1970.

According to a survey conducted by the Chestnut Burr, students become more 
educated about May 4 the longer they attend the university. In a random 
sampling of students by class standing, it was determined that 26 percent of all 
freshmen surveyed did not know the year of the May 4 incidents or the number of 
students killed. By comparison, only seven percent of the seniors surveyed were 
wrong. The survey also found that students who have attended Kent State for 
more than two years are more prone to attend the May 4 vigil or commemoration 
ceremony. Of those students who do attend either event, the majority identified 
themselves as curious spectators in the event. (May 4 photo courtesy of John Filo) 

The students began to protest the "occupation" of Kent State by 
military forces. The students wanted the Guard off campus as 
bad as the Guard wanted off campus. 

But that was not the case. 

Shortly after noon on May 4, a crowd gathered on the 
Commons. Members of the Guard drove by in a Jeep, telling the 
protesters to disperse. The crowd jeered. The Guard threw tear 
gas. The crowd moved. 

A rock-throwing contest, not won by either side, ended almost 
as quickly as it began and the guardsmen began to withdraw 
from the field where they had pushed the students. 

Then, as the soldiers were about to crest the hill by Taylor 
Hall, the students began to taunt them about their apparent 

It was then that the worst 13 seconds in Kent State's history 
took place. 

With no warning, the Guard turned and fired into the crowd of 
students. In the blink of an eye, four students lie dying. Nine 
others were wounded in varying degrees of severity. The campus 
was immediately closed and courses were completed through 

Since that day, many have said Kent State would never regain 
its stature. Many thought the university would never get over the 
stigma of the shootings. Many were wrong. 

The Center for Peaceful Change was established as a living 
memorial. The candlelight vigil and commemoration programs 
still exist in honor of the fallen. Most have indeed come to 
terms with the tragedy of May 4. 

No matter what happens, Kent State will continue to be 
known as the place where four students died protesting the 
expansion of the Vietnam war. But this need not be a negative 
aspect of the university's reputation. We have learned a great 
deal from the tribulation and there is a great deal more yet to

The Chestnut Burr: 

Yesterday . . . 

Although the names and faces have changed over 
the years, the Chestnut Burr has been around to 
document the growth of Kent State. The pictures on 
these pages are taken from old yearbooks which are 
stored in the Burr archives, a collection which spans 
our 70 year existence on the KSU campus. 



. . . and Today 


For over 70 years, the Chestnut Burr has been documenting the everyday life of the 
KSU student, making an earnest attempt to tell the college story like it really is. Over 
the years, styles have change — and so has the Chestnut Burr. We at the KSU 
yearbook are almost like a family — we share the good and bad times, we fight like 
brothers and sisters — but we wouldn't want it any other way.

All things are not always what they seem to be, or 
sowe"d like to think. On a sunny February day with 
temperatures reaching above 60 degrees, KSU 
students somehow manage to find time to do all the 
things that a long winter has prevented them from 
doing. Even though some people were able to take 
advantage of the unseasonably warm weather, some 
unfortunate students, like the foreign-looking cast 
member of the KSU production of Peer Gynt (left), 
were forced to spend their time indoors.

Free time. It's something that most KSU students 

claim they can never get enough of. But when they 

do find time for themselves, it can be a real relief. 

Some people spend time by themselves, and some 

people prefer to make time for friends. The May 

1983 G.Q. Fashion show and G.Q. Cabaret are good 

examples of large group activities (above and right). 

You can act outrageous or lounge quietly on the 

Student Center steps; both are worthwhile 

investments of the afternoon and evening hours. 

After all, it sure beats studying.

The Stray Cats weren't alone as they "strutted" in to the Kent State 
Memorial Gym on October 31, 1983, for the Black Cat Ball. The event, 
sponsored by the All-Campus Programming Board, drew an estimated 
3.300 fans who "Ranted and Raved" as the band performed hits from 
its two albums. Opening for the Stray Cats were 14 Carat Soul, a 
tremendously well-received A'Capella group, and The Times, a Cleveland- 
based Techno-Pop band.

It is like Christmas for the "big kids." Ghosts, goblins, witches . . . It's all 
part of KSU's weirdest evening. Maybe it's a chance for some of us to "let it all 
hang out," so to speak. But it is a time for people to go out on the streets of the lit- 
tle town of Kent, and show the townspeople what college people are "really" like 
. . . Just a bunch of fun-loving intellectuals out to have a good time.

Beach Party 


What do you get when you cross three kegs of beer, a couple tons 
of sand, loud music and 300 guests clad in swimming attire and 
throw them into a residence hall in mid-winter? The Dunbar

for some of the wildest parties on campus, threw its annual Beach 
Party, complete with sun and fun, on Jan. 28, 1984.

The KSU Theater production of Peer Gynt, a play 
by Henrik Ibsen, marked the final curtain call for 
veteran theater professor William Zucchero. 
Zucchero. who served for 30 years in the Kent 
theater department, chose the Ibsen play as his final 
project before his retirement in July of 1984. The 
play, which was condensed from an eight hour epic 
poem, opened on February 17, 1984. 


Pornography Debate 

Although it wasn't as heated as some spectators had expected, 
the All-Campus Programming Board-sponsored pornography

A few minutes after 6 p.m. on February 26, 1984, stage hands at 

KSU's Stump Theater began to strike the set of Peer Gynt. 

In a way, it was just the end of another play. But it also marked 

the final KSU play ever to be directed by Dr. William Zucchero, 

Acting Director of the School of Theater. 

Zucchero, who has been working with acting students at Kent 

State for 30 years, chose Peer Gynt as his last production before 

his retirement in July. 

According to Zucchero, Peer Gynt, a play by Henrik Ibsen, was 

one of the plays that he has always wanted to do. Zucchero said 

Peer Gynt was the first play he read in college and he was 

instantly intrigued by its complexity. 

"At that point, I had never seen the play done before, and, by 

God, if I was going to see it done, I knew I was going to have to 

do it msyelf," Zucchero said. "That play just piqued my 

curiosity. It was so complex, it was a real challenge."

Although the 1984 Winter Olympics, held in 
Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, were not a repeat of the 1980 
success story, the game did have its fill of individual 
success. Scott Hamilton from Bowling Green, Ohio, 
captured the Gold medal in the figure skating event, 
after missing two trademark jumps in the finals — a 
mistake which could have cost him the medal.

When Billy Johnson (left), the American downhill skier, took to the slopes in Sarajevo, he 
said there was no doubt in his mind that he already owned the gold medal. Johnson, the 
outspoken World Cup downhill champion, was recruited to the U.S. team in 1980, but was 
thrown off the squad soon after that for being out of shape. Although hopes were high that the 
American Hockey team could repeat the rags-to-riches success story of 1980, the young U.S. 
team was never able to make it to the medal round. The team was led by 18-year-old Pat 
LaFontaine, first-round draft pick for the Stanley Cup champion New York Islanders.

Intramurals: Softball . . . 




Thomas Lewis 

The 1983-84 intramural season can be 
termed a success, according to KSU 
intramural director Winona Vannoy. 

"The goal of the intramural department 
is to provide wholesome recreation for 
every student and staff member," Vannoy 

With that goal in mind, Vannoy said, 
the 1983-84 intramural season can be 
called a huge success. 

The number of teams competing, in 
softball alone, increased to 189, a statistic 
which Vannoy attributed to the universal 
qualities of the sport. Vannoy asserts that 
softball is a sport which anyone can play 
and enjoy without having any exceptional 
athletic ability. 

Tournament play for softball was 
conducted in the fall, with the Manurski 
Mavericks, led by pitcher/coach Paul 
Mendik, winning the All-University 
championship. The Mavericks downed the 
Lumber Kings 12-6 to win the 
tournament. Both teams were from the 
independent division. 

The Indians beat the No-Names to win 
the Co-Rec division and Prentice Hall 
edged out The Baker's Dozen to win the 
women's division.

According to KSLi intramural director Winona 
Vannoy. the 1983-84 intramural Softball season was one 
of the most successful seasons ever. Of course, the 
success of the individual team is dependent on the 
devotion of its players — even if it means self-sacrifice.

When the leaves change color and the 
weather begins to turn bitter cold, people 
in Northeast Ohio know it's the beginning 
of a new season — namely autumn. 

For over 1,200 Kent State students, 
these seasonal changes signal the 
beginning of an even more important 
season — intramural football. 

As usual, the 1983-84 season had a 
higher-than-average participant turnout. 
The program has been expanding and has 
traditionally been among the top four 
sports in the intramural program. 

Five different groups were represented 
in the 83-84 program, the largest of which 
was the independent division with 48 
teams. The independent division was 
followed by the dorm, open, fraternity and 
women's divisions which had from eight to 
36 teams each. 


Bob Sorino 

The three-week season was followed by 
a two-week tournament which ended on 
Nov. 29 with the championship game. 

The big winners in tournament play 
were Kappa Alpha Si, who won both the 
Super 9 and the fraternity division, and 
the Animals, who won the women's 

Mike Charles, captain of The G Spots, 
explained the popularity of intramural 
football: "A lot of the guys played football 
in high school, and this is the only 
opportunity they get to play organized 
football. " 

"There's a lot of competition on the 
field," Charles said. "Of course, some 
teams do better than others, but I think 
everyone has a real good time."

Devotion is something that most intramural 
football players could write a book about. Because 
the sport is played late in the fall semester, when 
temperatures begins to drop and the hours in a day 
decrease, staying warm is as important as winning 
the game itself.

According to tournament coordinator 
Andy Deyo, intramural basketball was one 
of the most popular and competitive of all 
the intramural department sports during 
the 1983-84 season. 

"It's really a very competitive 
atmosphere — perhaps too competitive at 
times for the participants," Deyo said. 
"Intramural basketball is probably one of 
the most popular sports that our 
department has to offer." 

Deyo said that many of the participants 
in the 1983-84 season have played some 
sort of organized sport in high school and 
wanted to continue their association with 
that particular sport while they are still in 
college. In other words, the intramural 
program provides students with a viable 
alternative to the time and energy to 
maintain a career in intercollegiate sports. 

But even with the athletic aspect, Deyo 
concedes that many of the students are 
involved with the program for social 

"Sure, there's a certain aspect of social 
cohesion between the players," Deyo said. 
"It gives them a chance to do something 
rather than go downtown at night."

During the 1983-84 season, over 200 teams 
competed in the Kent State intramural basketball 
program. All leagues, except for the new KSU 
league, competed once a week. Eight leagues were 
represented, including the men, women, wheelchair, 
fraternity and co-rec divisions competed in the cold 
winter months — some of them trying for first place 
honors, and most of the teams competing for nothing 
more than fun.

It isn't a competition, and there really isn't any 
high pressure to speak of. Gymnastics in Motion, for 
the most part, is a chance for the members of the 
men and women of the KSU gymnastics team to 
exhibit their talent and grace in the relaxed 
atmosphere which, for a short time, transforms 
athletes into actors.

While some students were soaking up the last 
rays of summer the members of the KSU Bicycle 
Club were engaging in a slightly more physical 
activity. The Little 500 Bike Race, sponsored by 
the KSU Bicycle Club, the Intramural 
Department and Undergraduate Student Senate, 
was designed to test the stamina of participating 
bikers while still managing to provide fun. Eleven 
teams participated in the event, and the winning 
team won $60 each for their efforts. 



Rebuilding a team can be a long, 
tough and frustrating process. 
Unfortunately, the Kent State 
volleyball team was no exception to the 

For the second year in a row, head 
coach Sheree Harvey was faced with a 
young team which was not yet 
experienced enough for competitive 
conference play. The 1983 edition of 
the KSU volleyball team suffered the 
loss of two key players early in the 
season — a factor which affected the 
team's play for the rest of the year. 

Laurie Mehlenbacher, the team's 
only senior, was redshirted before the 
season started after she broke a bone in 
her wrist. 

Sophomore Penny Howard was 
sidelined most of the season with

torn knee cartilage. 

After injuries, the team was reduced to one junior, two 
sophomores and six freshmen. 

The Lady Flashes started the season off with one win, followed 
by a seven game losing streak which severely affected the morale 
of the young players. 

"The team's attitude is something we've had trouble with most 
of the season," Harvey said in a Stater interview. "Individuals 
who should have come through for us weren't ready . . . and that 
just caused a bad chain reaction." 

Kent State ended the season with a dismal 3-22 overall record. 

The team was led by junior Kim Maddox, who was ranked in 
the top 10 players in the Mid- American Conference throughout 
the year. 

Freshmen standouts included Lynda Shepler, Pam Laake and 
Lisa Heeman who all helped add to the consistency of the young 
front line.

"For a rebuilding year, I thought we did 
well," Richburg said. "Our team had a lot 
of outstanding individuals and we started 
to get some depth on our team toward the 
end of the season."

included a new KSU 880-yard relay team 
record and the qualification of hammer-

with a lot of changes," Richburg said.

There are many words one could use to 
describe the 1983 edition of the Flash 
baseball team, but if you could pick only 
one, it would have to be success. 

The team, led by head coach Bob 
Morgan, shattered the confidence of its 
opponents, as well as 18 records, en route 
to the most successful season in Flash 
baseball history. 

Morgan, who was hired as head baseball 
coach in July of 1981, resigned his 
position at KSU to accept a similar job at 
the University of Indiana shortly after the 
1983 season. 

Led on the field by co-captains Kelly 
Meneer and Scott Burkes, the Flashes 
displayed a winning attitude which, when 
combined with the team's raw talent, 
helped rewrite the KSU record books.

The 1983 varsity girl's softball team ended its 
long season with a 18-19-1 record. The team finished 
4th in the tough Mid-American Conference with a 
10-7-1 conference record, which was a considerable 
improvement over the previous season's last place 

The Lady Flashes were also a considerably 
stronger team, with 13 out of 20 players returning to 
give the squad the experience needed to keep a team 
afloat in the MAC. 


Bob Brindley (above and below 

The team was led by captains Rhonda 
Definbaugh and Kathy Golias. Earning the 
honor of regional All-American were 
sophomore Maureen Notaro, who, as a 
freshman, was voted the team's most 
valuable player, and junior Jackie Smolik. 

The Lady Flashes faced a tough schedule 
which covered the months from March to 
May, adding experience which head coach 
Lori Fuglestad and assistant coach JoAnn 
Robinson said they hope will make a 
stronger team.

Softball isn't easy — as a matter of fact, it's hard 
work. Getting into the action of a game sometimes 
means just that (far left). Taking some last minute

There was a new coach and a new 
system for the Kent State football team as 
they finished the 1983 season with a 1-10 
overall record, 1-8 in the Mid- American 
Conference. The Golden Flashes finished 
ninth in the conference. 

Before the season started, head coach 
Dick Scesniak said that the Flashes would 
be "entertaining," and despite the team's 
poor record, a few bright moments did 
manage to shine through. 

The high point of the season was 
undoubtedly KSU's 37-13 win over 
Eastern Michigan on Nov. 5. The victory 
broke the Flashes' 21 -game losing streak, 
which was the longest in the nation. 


Mickey Jones 


The victory was not the only story of 
the game, though. Some of the 7,020 fans 
at Dix Stadium decided they could not 
wait until the end of the game to tear 
down the goalposts, so they ripped them 
down while there were still four minutes 
remaining in the fourth quarter. 

"Something like that just reflects 
today's society," grunted Eastern 
Michigan head coach Jim Harkema. 

KSU football players were not quite so 
cynical about their fans' unbridled 

"We loved it," KSU senior linebacker 
Russ Hedderly said. 

Another high point in the season was 
Kent State's away game with Toledo on 
Oct. 29. The Golden Flashes lost 37-34, 
but the Rockets, undefeated MAC leader 
at the time, had to score a touchdown with 
less than two minutes remaining in the 
game to prevent an upset.

In that game, two players who 
transferred to KSU before the 1983 season 
broke or tied six team records. Junior 
quarterback Stu Rayburn threw for 419 
yards, gained 405 total yards, completed 
23 passes and threw four touchdowns. 
Junior split end Ken Hughes broke marks 
in yards receiving (201) and touchdown 
catches (three). 

One of the most unbelievable games of 
the season was the shocking Homecoming 
loss to Ohio University. KSU led the 
Bobcats 20-0 in the fourth quarter and the 
Homecoming Day crowd was going wild. 
But the Bobcats scored three touchdowns 
in the rain and mud to pull out a 
heart-stopping 21-20 win that must have 
left Scesniak wondering what more could 

After the loss to Toledo, the Flashes 
finally won against Eastern Michigan, but 
lost its final two contests to Western 
Michigan (21-13) and Bowling Green

This past season, field hockey was 
reinstated as a recognized Mid-American 
Conference sport. 

Rising to the occasion, the Lady Flashes 
finished their season with a 3-5 record in 
conference play, and a 1 2-8 overall record. 

This year, Kent State added seven 
freshmen to an already young squad. 
Captain Beth Stefanchik, the team's 
midfielder, was the only senior on the 1983 
KSU field hockey team. 

Co-captain Mary Jo Hall, a second year 
transfer student from Illinois State 
University, led the team in scoring with 17 
goals and 


Jim Fossett 

one assist. 

Under head coach Lori Fuglestad, the 
Lady Flashes began an impressive season, 
outscoring their opponents 21-1. With the 
help of freshman goalie Dawn Malone, 
the Lady Flashes shut out opponents 
Northern Michigan, Marion College, 
Lake Forest and Franklin College in the 
first four games of the season. 

Led by Hall and scoring stalwarts 
Laura Mazzulli (10 goals, six assists) and 
freshman Melanie Spangler (nine goals, 
one assist), the Lady Flashes managed to 
raise their record to 7-1 and appeared to 
be heading toward a spectacular season 

But then, at the end of October, injuries 
began to haunt the young KSU team. 
After losing three sophomores and one 
freshman, the Flashes were forced to play 
shorthanded for the remainder of the 
season. The team went 5-7 in their final 12

With a painful season behind them, 
the Kent State ice hockey team has 
turned a bleak past into a promising 
future. The Golden Flashes finished 
last season with a dismal 6-25 overall 
record, but managed to finish the 1983- 
84 season with a record of 16-11. 

The squad, under the direction of 
second year head coach Don Lumley, 
fielded a number of sophomores who 
recalled the lessons they learned as an 
inexperienced freshman team. 

Although the team will be losing 
only two seniors from its lineup, both of 
them were ranked among the top four 
scorers during the 1983-84 season. 

Tom Viggiano, who became KSU's 
only four-year letterman this year, led 
the team in scoring with 77 points 
(33 goals, 44 assists) in just 28 games. 
With that record, Viggiano took over 
the position of all-time leading scorer. 

Jon Straffon, the Golden Flashes' 
captain, was among the KSU scoring 
leaders consistently during the season. 


Bob Sorino 


Thomas Lewis 

Sophomores Chris Baker (26 goals, 36 
assists) and Mark Spring completed the 
top four scoring chart for the 1983-84 

One of the brightest elements of the 
team during the season, was the 
emergence of freshmen goaltender Adam 
Brinker. Brinker, a St. Louis native, beat 
out junior Doug Bowen for the starting 
position. After a slow season start, Brinker 
sharpened his shot-blocking skills and 
reduced his goals against average by 
nearly two goals as the season progressed. 

Two of the major highlights of the 
1983-84 season were the five-game and 
the seven-game winning streaks that the 
team put together to break the old mark 
of four games, set during the 1980-81 

After losing three straight games in 
early November, the Flashes routed 
Niagra College twice, swept two games 
from Penn State and won the first game 
of a two game series with SUNY-Geneseo. 
KSU outscored its opponents 45-17 
during the streak, which was 

Mickey Jones 


Mark Miller 

broken at the Ice Arena when Geneseo's 
Ice Knights outscored the Golden Flashes 

The win streak stayed in the record 
book for only a few short weeks, though, 
as KSU soon built up a seven-game string 
that lasted through early February. The 
streak began with a two-game sweep of 
the Bowling Green Club team in the final 
games of 1983. When the Flashes returned 
from winter break and knocked off 
Nathaniel Hawthorne by margins of 4-2 
and 8-3, stretching the streak to four 
games. St. Bonaventure fell victim to KSU 
the next weekend with the Flashes 
notching 8-6 and 6-3 victories that 
extended the streak to a record six games. 
KSU then traveled to Chicago the next 
week for a two-game set with Lake 

The Flashes, whose trouble was evident 
in their away record. After winning the 
first game of the series 7-3, an overtime 
goal in the second game handed the 
Golden Flashes their first loss in eight

"Everybody helps everybody" seemed to be the motto for 
the KSU gymnastics team which pulled together and 
finished one of its best seasons ever. 

The 1984 season saw a team which was able to rely on 
the power of its youth — an attribute that was a drawback 
for many of the other KSU team sports. 

"With only two seniors, the squad was almost wholly 
built on youth," women's coach Janet Bachna said. "The 
youth helped us. I think it made us a lot stronger." 

The Lady Flashes were led by team captain Dawn 
Roberts, Debbie Rose, Patty Tobin, Kathy Collet and 
Bernie Dennie, the only upperclassman of the group. 

The team, which had a penchant for Snickers bars and 
Michael Jackson, had its 200th win during the 1984 season. 

The men's gymnastics team held a 4-1 Great Lakes 
Intercollegiate league record, and had hopes of winning the 

"It's probably the finest season we've had for men's 
gymnastics at Kent State," Coach Terry Nesbitt said, 
referring to the many personal and team records which 
were broken during the season. "You'll find that 
gymnastics is different than any other sport ... it doesn't 
matter if we come out with a victory — it matters if we get 
a good score even if we do lose, in some cases, we have a 
victory when we lose."

The 1983 swim season was the year 
of streaks for the KSU women's team. 
The year began with three consecutive 
losses (at the hands of Pittsburgh, 
Bowling Green and Eastern 
Michigan). Then came the win streak, 
with four straight victories over 
Wooster, Slippery Rock, Cleveland 
State and Wright State. At the end of 
the season, another losing streak hit, 
and the Lady Flashes dropped 
decisions to Ball State, Ohio and 
Youngstown State. 

Although third-year head coach 
Greg Oberlin's team finished below 
.500, he called the season successful, 
citing the many individual 

One of those accomplishments, was 
the performance of freshman diver 
Molly Lang. Lang saved her best for 
last as she qualified for the NCAA 
regional diving competition. Freshman 
standout Brenda Bury, a strong 
freestyler, was consistently among the 
team's top scorers. 

Although the KSU men's swimming 
team's season was also filled with 
streaks, it was not filled with winning 
and losing streaks. The whole season 
was a streak — a 10 meet losing streak 
which gnawed at the character of the 
KSU team. Coach Oberlin summed up 
the season when he reluctantly said, 
"It's really frustrating for the team to 
go to each meet knowing there's not 
much of a chance of winning it."

The 1983-84 wrestling season got off 
to a slow start for the Golden Flashes 
who, like many other KSU teams, were 
plagued with the difficulties of an 
inexperienced team. 

Head coach Ron Gray was faced 
with a squad filled with underclassmen, 
including 16 freshmen, and he had his 
work cut out for him. 

The Flashes lost their home opener 
26-1 1 to powerhouse Ohio State, even 
though sophomore Jeff Gainer (126), 
senior Marty Lucas (134) and junior 
Ed DiFeo (167) managed to bring in 
wins for the team. 

Things began to look up for the 
Flashes when KSU won its Mid- 
American Conference opener at Miami

Lucas and senior Allan Childers, along 
with freshman Doug Baker, pulled the 
team up to victory, sparking a chain of 
wins which lasted most of the season. 

The Golden Flashes were in top form 
when they finally met with Youngstown 
State and Eastern Michigan. Kent State 
soundly defeated both teams. 

Lucas, with a 19-6 season record, 
finished third in the MAC and ranked 
second on the team. Junior Doug Dake 
(177) took first place honors in the team 

Childers (150), a two-time MAC 
champion was ranked among the top 10 
wrestlers in the nation in his weight class. 
Childers joined KSU's wrestling elite 
when he broke the record for most career 
victories with his 74-23-1 standing.

To most observers, the 1983-84 
women's basketball season would not be 
considered a banner year. But for 
members of the team, it was a time when 
many of the goals set early in the season 
were achieved. Head coach Laurel 
Wartluft said that, despite the final 
record, she was pleased with her young 
team which finished with a - record. 

"I think that we did really well for being 
involved in a rebuilding year," Wartluft 
said. "One of the most important things 
you have to look at when you have a 
young team is that they don't get down 
and upset with themselves — You have to 
be very careful that the team does not give 

The 1983-84 Lady Flashes were a 

young team — most of them freshmen 
and sophomores — who lacked experience, 
not ambition. Although the squad had 
stabilized by mid-season, they were 
suffering on the floor due to the lack of a 
solid team leader. 

Although she said it was difficult, 
Wartluft resigned herself to the painful 
prospects of rebuilding a basketball team. 

"We took our lumps, and I think that 
made me realize that you have to be very 
patient with a young team," Wartluft 
said. "We have to focus more on the 
future and how to build a solid, consistent 
program that is representative of Kent

For Coach Jim McDonald and the Kent 
State men's basketball team, the 1983-84 
season was full of unexpected, but 
pleasant, surprises. 

The Flashes, whose 15-13 record in 
1982-83 was the school's best in 32 years, 
lost four players to graduation. 

Accordingly, K.SU was picked to finish 
ninth in the Mid-American conference. 

However, the Flashes pulled together 
under McDonald, KSU's second-year 
head coach, and qualified for the MAC 
Tournament for the second straight year. 

The Flashes opened the season with five 
victories in their first seven games. 
Included in that span was an 87-72 win 
over the University of Akron before more 
than 3,500 at Memorial Gym. 

KSU, however, fell into a mid-season 
slump and lost seven of its next eight 
games. The Golden Flashes lost six of 
their first seven conference games during 
that stretch. 

With a 1-6 record in the MAC, it did

not appear KSU would qualify for the 
seven-team conference tournament in 
Rockford, 111. 

But the Flashes won four straight games 
and moved into a four-way tie for fourth 
place in the conference. KSU, which last 
won four straight games during the 1979- 
80 season, defeated Ball State and Central 
Michigan at home and Western Michigan 
and Bowling Green on the road in the 

The Golden Flashes sealed their berth 
in the MAC Tournament with a 65-50 
upset of league-leading Miami before a 
season-high crowd of 4,510 at Memorial 

KSU was led by the trio of Marvin 
Robinson, Anthony Grier and Larry 

Robinson, a 6-foot-6 senior, finished the 
season in the top 20 in the conference in 
scoring, the top five in rebounding and the 
top three in field-goal percentage.

The only senior on KSU's 12-man 
roster, Robinson averaged 1 1 points and 
eight rebounds per game, while shooting 
60 percent from the field. 

Robbins, a 6-foot-3 junior guard, led the 
Flashes in scoring, and averaged better 
than 17.5 points a game. Robbins scored 
in double figures in all but two of KSU's 

Grier, a 5-foot- 1 1 junior guard, was the 
team's second-leading scorer. Grier, who 
averaged more than 15 points a game, 
also became the Flashes' all-time assist 
leader, passing Kenny Howell's mark of 

Another bright spot on the team was 
freshman center Terry Wearsch of Elyria. 

Wearsch, a 6-foot-7, 220 pounder, 
worked his way onto the starting lineup by 
the 1 1th game of the season and averaged 
eight points and seven rebounds for the 
rest of the year.

The Contest 

Again, the infamous contest graces the pages of the 
Chestnut Burr. Of course, any group (alleged or real) with 
$30 can throw together a group shot of their own. But it 
takes talent and raw creativity to mastermind an 
entertaining shot worthy of winning the Burr group shot 

Actually, groups shots tend to be rather boring and 
repetitive, so we at the Burr feel it is our responsibility to 
encourage originality. If it accomplishes nothing else, it 
manages to keep the yearbook staff from losing all touch 
with sanity when the time comes to sort out 40 identical 
group shots. Also, it helps make an otherwise dull section of 
the book look slightly more exciting. 

Judging the 1984 contest were Bob Sorino, veteran Burr 
editor, and Mickey Jones, photo editor. Although the 
judges were surprised with the overwhelming lack of 
originality, they agreed the groups they chose were 
deserving of recognition. 

The winning contest picture was of a group which took 
second place in the contest last year. KSU's own To Be 
Announced, the wild TV-2 comedy troupe, was chosen on 
the basis of originality and/or appropriateness. 

The runner-up spot was claimed by the Daily Kent 
Stater, which chose Ray's Place as the location for 
its group shot. 

For their efforts, the Chestnut Burr generously refunded 
the money paid by both groups.

What can I say this year that I didn't say the last time 
around. For the past two years, I have had the dubious honor 
(at least I think it was an honor) of being editor of this 
prestigious publication. 

I've spent so much time here in Taylor hall that the School 
of Journalism wants to charge me rent. But on a salary of 50 
cents an hours, I don't think they would have much success if 
they tried to collect. 

This position took a lot of time. Most of that time should 
have been spent in classrooms, or at least doing homework. It 
was a drain physically, mentally and especially on my GPA. 
But when 1 leave Kent State in May, I take more than a 
diploma. I take experiences, knowledge and friendships. I 
think I value the friendships more than anything. 

When 1 decided to stay on as editor, I made a list of all the 
things that I was and wasn't going to do (things like not 
missing class and blowing off deadlines). 

I think I lost the list sometime during the summer. 

Was it worth it? You're damn right. I wouldn't trade any of 
the problems or the rewards for anything. The experience of 
running this yearbook has taught me more about the working 
world than anything else I've done here at KSU. 

Finally, the time has come to beg teachers to forgive me for 
missing all of their classes. It is time to call mom and dad to 
say: "Hi?! Remember me?" It is time to indulge in one of the 
greatest collegiate activities ever to be invented — sleeping. 

Putting out a yearbook takes more work than anyone could 
know, but it's not an individual effort. It takes a lot of 
dedication from everyone. 

Brian, for all the times that you asked me stupid questions 
and I gave you stupid answers, I hope you know I was only 
kidding. I know you'll do a good job next year. Hopefully, 
you'll do better than I did. 

Mickey. Dear Mickey. You yelled at me more times than 
my mother, but I love you anyway. I have great faith in you 
and I hope I've been as much of a help as I have been a pain. 

Well, Matt . . . We've done it. We've been through hell two 
years in a row. I would never have been able to do it without 
you. Aren't you glad I begged you to take the job? 

And now. Finally, since this is the last time I will be in the 
Burr, I want to thank the two people who have helped me the 
most — my mother and father. 

Well folks, now that the sentiments and apologies are over, 
it's time to say good-bye. I'm graduating.
